Open call for online exhibition "Instructions for action"

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

From May 12 till June 11, 2021, Novastan and the Capacity Building Foundation (CBF) invite artists, activists, public initiatives, video-makers from Central Asia and Germany to participate in the online exhibition "Instructions for action". Our Open Call invites proposals that critically engage with the situation of being locked in self-isolation and watching the world from the screen (phone, computer), of being faced with the reality of rereading and following lots of behavioral rules and instructions. Artists are encouraged to become the creators of their own creative instructions to follow. There are no limitations of form, anything that can be shown online is acceptable.

The project invites the interested visitor to implement the different artistic instructions into (offline) practice - or to choose not to.

Proposals may connect to larger themes that were caused by the lockdown and opened many discussions and topics in the relevant country or community.

The application deadline is June 11, 2021, at 11:59 pm +6 GMT. Applications should be submitted in English or Russian, using this form.

Please, consider these guidelines and the thematic description before submitting your application.

Afro-German Artists & African Diaspora: Art against Racism in Germany | Public Art on Billboards Open Call | €500 cash prizes

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

+++ The deadline has been extended to 31st of May 2021 midnight. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for further updates! +++

Calling Afro-German artists, designers, photographers and illustrators and those who live in the former German colonies Togo, Cameroon, Namibia, Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania and African Diaspora in Germany.

This open call is about creatively exposing the blind spots in the collective consciousness of the white majority in Germany towards its colonial history and the racism against black people that is rooted in that era.

Most Germans are still not aware that the German colonial history, albeit much shorter than that of other colonial powers, was every bit as brutal - including murder, rape, forced labor, profiteering and genocide. They are not aware of the bloody trace the German Empire under Kaiser Wilhelm II has left in Africa, and how its deeply racist colonial administration has laid the foundation of every-day racism in Germany today.

How it works

The Blind Spots in the Street poster competition works like an advertising campaign: it consists of a series of posters on billboards in public spaces that are intended to arouse curiosity but do not directly reveal the topic. Each billboard is tagged with a QR code. When scanned, the QR codes lead to our website, where information on the idea behind each poster is provided.

The task
1. to develop a teaser ("eye-catcher") image that arouses curiosity in the viewer without revealing what exactly the image is about. The objective is to get a wider audience to learn about the issues of colonial history and racism. Optionally, write a headline to go with it.
2.Write a text (150-400 words) that provides background information about the image.

What to aim for
The images must be striking and impactful in public. Most importantly, they must arouse curiosity! Only those viewers who really want to know what's behind the image will scan the QR code.
Examples for the interaction of images and texts can be found on our blog.

The rules
1. Participants are at least 18 years old and have had their own experience with racism in Germany or are originially from or live in the former German colonies of Togo, Cameroon, Namibia, Tanzania, Rwanda or Burundi.
2. Colors should be primarily red, black, white, and shades of gray so that the images are recognizable as part of the campaign
3. An area of 83x86 mm vertical must be left blank for the QR code.
